The Chief Apostle comments in a message as follows:
"The misfortune hits me very hard! We have prayed yesterday evening for the victims in the circle of the Apostles here in Kigali / Rwanda, where I am currently visiting our faithful. My flight departed only minutes before the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam. Maybe I have even met some of these people at the airport. I pray intensely for all the victims and their families and share the suffering of our brothers and sisters."
The New Apostolic Church Malaysia reaches out in thought and prayer to all mourning families. We join the international community to offer sympathy and condolences. May healing and forgiveness be brought about by the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
